Discover the difference between hair loss and hair shedding.

Does your ponytail feel thinner than usual? Are you noticing more hair at the bottom of the shower drain? Losing hair is natural, but it could be a sign of something more serious if it’s occurring at a faster rate. Read on to discover the difference between hair loss and hair shedding, and visit Wigs and Hair Solutions for more information.

Hair Shedding Often Resolves Itself

Hair shedding occurs when a person has experienced a stressful or traumatic event that forces the natural hair cycle into a prolonged resting phase. Excessive shedding is common in women who have experienced rapid weight loss, childbirth, a recent operation, or other stressors. As the body readjusts, the excessive shedding stops and hair growth tends to restore to normal fullness within nine months.

Hair Loss Persists Until the Condition is Resolved

There are many reasons why a woman might experience hair loss, from hereditary hair loss to harsh hair care products. People with hair loss should seek the professional opinion of a doctor to determine the specific cause of their hair loss. Once the cause is addressed, the hair may return to a normal growth pattern. Some forms of hair loss, however, are permanent. Treatments, such as chemotherapy to treat cancer, may be the cause of hair loss. In this instance, hair growth is usually restored once treatment is over.
